Illustration Friday: visitors


My submission for Illustration Friday's "visitors" is from a Marisol greeting card. I'm sure they are visitors ready to celebrate a night on the town. Speaking of visit I hope that you will take a moment and check out the new group I belong to at the
Scribble Guild. They are all super talented and I'm chuffed to be in their company. Have a fun weekend!

Thanks for the link to the SCribBle GuiLd. I'll be a frequent visitor. Did you know that the town I now live in was the inspiration for Thornton Wilder's "OUR TOWN"..... yep, Peterborogh, NH just named one of the 10 coolest towns in America to inhabit, by a national Travel magazine. I love your twosome stepping out for a night on the town. You just know they will have a wonderful time.

Oh! I am "very pleased" to see this! My husband, being from England and all, says this all the time. Usually he is "right bloody chuffed".

Nicole said...

I passed of here early, I admired your illo and your new group, but I do not had the courage to leave a comment, I wanted to say you a lot of things, not only "nice" or "beautiful", my English is not very good...

Toni said...

Hey Val 'chuffed'? I can only guess at this point. Have fun with Scribble Guild

Cream said...

Hahahahaha! Chuffed! I thought only the English used this word to mean pleased...

I can't believe you got Ramone and Carla stumped.

Wow, this has a real calming mood to it - love the texture.
I think it would look great as a print in a cafe or my house :)

Chuffed: very pleased!
not to be confused with a chuff:
insensitive, rude, boorish person

Angela said...

Very nice!
The Scribble Guild is a great group!

Alina Chau said...

There is a charming musical feel to this piece!

I love the idea of each building being a step. I'm dead chuffed that you are spreading English slang as well! LOL.
